Does Silverlight require .NET Framework installed?

6 ביולי 2007

A common question about Silverlight is - "Does .NET Framework installation is required in order to use Silverlight?".  The answer to this is no. A cross platform version of the .NET Framework is included in the 4MB Silverlight 1.1 download, which means you do not need to have anything extra installed on the client. The Silverlight version of the .NET framework includes the same CLR engine that ships with the full .NET Framework, and a subset of the .NET Framework namespace libraries.  Technorati Tags: Silverlight del.icio.us Tags: Silverlight

Krugle also has a search engine for tech articles and documentations. Another great utility from Krugle is that you can search on specific code features such as function calls, function definitions, class definitions and comments. However, Krugle's disadvantage...
